Nice cat tails. I like bog and marginal plants; did have a bog garden at a prior place and miss it.

Thanks. What is "bog" - seen the word in botanical contexts but don´t know what it means or the practice of it

A bog is wet, muddy ground. One could make a bog garden in a low lying spot or dig up earth and put a liner under it to hold water (that's what I had to do.) A bog is less wet than a water garden, for example. A bog isn't under water but never dries out. That make sense?

It makes a lot of sense. Have never seen it here but it sounds exciting. Good luck with it and thank you for the information

England, in particular, is famous for it's bogs - especially the ones that have held human remains. If Bill43210 sticks his head in here, we'll quiz him... :ak47:

Thanks for viewing and the information. I don´t understand "... human remains"

I apologize for my cryptic message Torgny - it was late and I had already indulged myself in a brew and a cookie. aranoid:

The bogs in England (and some other parts of northern Europe) have, throughout modern archaeology, yielded well-preserved human corpses and body parts, some which are able to be dated to millennia before the Roman invasions of Britain approximately 2000 years ago. Given the violent nature of both secular and religious ancient Celt existence, and the savageness of the Roman invasions, there has been ample opportunity for body preservation.

I don't know all the details of the cause of the preservation properties of these particular bogs, but they are due in part to the high acidity of the places.

Yes, now I understand. It´s some acids that preserve, isn´t it. There is one of "them", or "those guys" in a town, Varberg, down the coast

Well there is perhaps some atom left, now building up the cattail
